Ford revealed sometime back that its upcoming Bronco will be remaining true to its roots. And now, Automotive news has disclosed some information that lends credibility to what the automaker has said.
An investor presentation by Dana, an automotive components supplier that produces axles for the Jeep Wrangler, had recently taken place.
In that presentation, Dana revealed that it had gained a contract from Ford to produce engineer axles for the Bronco as well as the Ranger. This implies that Ford isn’t joking when it comes to making these new models into mighty machines.
The AdvanTEK solid rear axles will be produced right beside the ones for the Wrangler over at Dana’s Toledo, Ohio factory. It sure looks like Jeep will, at last, be getting a worthy rival in the category it has been dominating for some time now.
The Bronco “will meet the needs of our most demanding off-road enthusiasts,” revealed a Ford spokesperson. However, he added that, “We will have more information to share about Bronco’s suspension closer to launch.”
There’s no doubt that it will be exciting to see how the Bronco will turn out next to the long-time champion Wrangler. This is especially since the Wrangler has been dominating SUV sales for a long time now.
